Businessinsider.com has and interesting article on a new message encryption app being designed by Peter Sunde.
One of the co-founders of the Pirate Bay — the file sharing website where users can download boatloads of illegal content — is creating an encrypted messaging app called Heml.is.
Heml.is, which means "secret" in Swedish, will keep prying government eyes away by using end-to-end encryption, a system so secure that even its founders say they can’t see your messages, even if they tried. "No one can spy on you, not even us."
Seecrypt is also out there.
